two of the best Jack Nicholson quotes EVER...

Jack Torrance before he starts to chop the door: "Little Pigs, Little Pigs, Let Me Come In. Not By The Hair Of Your Chinny Chin Chin. Then I'll Huff and I'll Puff and I'll Blow Your House In"

and after he chops a hole in the door, sticks his face thru with "Here's Johnny!!!"

Great movie. It's a classic. It brings back good memories. I saw it on a Friday night with a bunch of my friends when we were all teenagers When we left the theater, it was after midnight and it was cold and windy. We were all scared as hell. Those were the days.

Great movie. 

My favorite scene from a movie ever is when Jack is sitting at the bar with Lloyd the bartender and hallucinating his behind off.

Lloyd-"What'll it be sir?"

Jack-"THE HAIR OF THE DOG THAT BIT ME!''

-"Bourbon on the rocks"

Stephen King thought Kubrick screwed this up so he had it remade by some other shlock.

Great movie.  The remake (1991?) was very good as well.

what, the mini tv-series? don't quite think it rises up to the Kubrick version. the votes from IMDB may be from the fans of the story itself, but artfully speaking the remake is worse imo.

That particular shot of Jack Nicholson sticking his face through the door is my latest Tattoo that I got on my leg.  Awesome!!!  the only part of the movie I don't understand is when Wendy is running up a few flights of stairs and sees some dude/thing dressed up like a bear or something and it/he just stares at her.   WTF?  Does anyone know what I am talking about?

That scene is in the book...She's seeing some of the '20's New Years Eve party that Jack has been seeing.
